Redlands Coast Youth

Council recognises that young people make a significant contribution to the social, economic and cultural life of our community. Council is committed to the safe places and spaces in the city that accommodate the needs of young people and advocates for young people in the Redlands to learn, earn, and participate in the community.

The Redland Youth Strategy 2015-2020 is a living document that outlines Council's strategy for considering the needs and experiences of young people in our planning processes. The strategy focuses on five key commitments:

  • Safe spaces, safe places
  • Things to do 
  • Advocacy 
  • Learning and earning opportunities
  • Participation and connection to the community
